ETHICAL SOURCING

GLAMIRA is strongly attached to ethics and respects human rights, universal civil liberties, and fundamental freedoms beyond local habits. We are committed to assuring the integrity of our sources and maintaining the highest standards of social and environmental responsibility.

GLAMIRA obtains diamonds only from countries that are full participants of the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS). This is an international cooperative monitoring system created to discuss the ways we can eliminate the flow of “conflict diamonds” in the importation and exportation of rough diamonds. The Kimberley Process requires its members to tightly control diamond purchasing to ensure that they are not financing violence by rebel movements.

About the Kimberley Process

The Kimberley Process started when Southern African diamond-producing states met in Kimberley, South Africa, in May 2000 and has been in force since 2003. It is open to all countries and as of 2013, it has 54 participants, representing 81 countries all around the world from the European Union to United States. It is a civil society initiative and implements the requirements of preventing the flow of conflict diamonds coming from conflict zones, defined as such by the United Nations.

The Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) guarantees that each rough diamond that crosses an international border between two signing countries are ”conflict-free”.

GLAMIRA certifies that all of its diamonds are bought on the basis of written guarantees produced by its suppliers which are in compliance with the Kimberley Process.
